ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 

The acreage, yield, production, monthly and season average price, and crop 
value statistics in this bulletin are official State and USDA estimates prepared by 
the Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The county and area detail in these 
statistics were made possible by the participation of the Department of Agricultural 
Economics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. Market price quo- 
tations and shipment statistics are from the Marketing Bureau Section and the USDA 
Agricultural Marketing Service. Other sources of data are cited in footnotes. 

Agencies in the Florida Department of Agriculture providing basic data used 
in developing statistics in this summary include the Road Guard Section, Division of 
Inspection; State Markets Section and Celery Advisory Committee, Division of 
Marketing; and the Plant Inspection Section, Division of Plant Industry. County 
Agents of Florida's Agricultural Extension Service were very helpful in supplying 
information on vegetable production in their counties. 

Growers, shippers, processors, sales agencies, and transportation firms volim- 
tarily supplied much of the data used in developing these official statistics. Tliis 
public spirited cooperation is appreciated.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



SEASONAL GROUPS — Seasonal estimates are made 
for most of Florida's vegetable, melon, potato, and straw- 
berry crops to show supplies for a shorter period of time than 
the entire max'keting season. The seasonalclassificationused 
for each of Florida's crops is shown on the opposite page 
along with usual planting and harvesting dates. 



selling charges. Season average prices shown for quantities 
sold to processors during the 1963 fall crop and for all prior 
seasons represent prices paid the grower at the first receiv- 
iagpoint. Processing prices shown for the 1964 winter and 
spring seasons are on a delivered to the processing plant door 
basis and include transportation costs, etc. 



PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which has 
been planted for harvest during one designated season. To 
avoid duplication, acreage lost and replanted to the same 
crop in time for harvest in the same season is counted only 
once. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage harvested or 
partially harvested plus any additional acreage whicli reached 
maturity, but was not harvested due to labor shortages, low 
prices or other economic conditions. Acreage lost before or 
at maturity through natural causes is not included in the acre- 
age for harvest. 

YIELD is the average production of merchantable 
quality produced per acre and includes any unhai-vested pro- 
duction left in fields for economic reasons. 

PRODUCTION includes the quantity actually harvested 
plus any quantity that was left due to economic abandonment 
where losses of this type occur. 

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT is that portion of the 
croptliat reached maturity and is of merchantable quality but 
was not harvested because of labor shortages, low prices or 
other economic factors. 



TOTAL VALUE is the season average price received 
times the production of value. 

WEEKLY F, O. B. PRICE RANGE ~ Represents the 
low and high price received for generally good quality. Prices 
shown for Pompano are representative of sales at the State 
Farmers' Market. 

RAIL - TRUCK shipments are included in the straight 
rail shipments shown for each crop. 

RAIL LOAD FACTORS — Represents the average 
number of packages per rail car based on tabulations of way- 
bills showing the contents of each car. 

MIXED RAIL CARS ~ For major commodities the 
quantity shipped in mixed rail loads is tabulated from way- 
bills. The total quantity of each commodity is then converted 
to the equivalent of a straight rail car load. 

TRUCK SHIPMENTS are converted to equivalent car- 
lots on tlie basis of a pre-determined load factor. A minor 
difference of one or two carlot equivalents in the season total 
obtained by adding the monthly or weekly shipments exists 
because of rounding. 



PRODUCTION OF VALUE is the total production less 
the quantity abandoned due to economic reasons. 

SEASON AVERAGE PRICES for production sold on the 
fresh market represent the F. O. B. price received or its 
equivalent for all grades and quality of the commodity less 



PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT — The official USDA 
vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight basis. 
For this bulletin the official estimates for most vegetable 
crops have been converted to the most commonly used con- 
tainer. The following table gives the net weightused per con- 
tainer and the number of containers per hundredweight.

LIMA BEANS 
1963-64 



Lima bean production in Florida during the 1963- 
64 season was valued at $478, 000. This was $97, 000 
above the previous year but $33,000 below the five year 
average. The season average f, o. b. price per bushel 
was $3. 82 compared to $3. 12 the previous year. This 
was an 18 percent increase in the average price per 
bushel from the 1962-63 season and is 6 percent above 
the five year average of $3. 61 per bushel. 

Production in the 1963-64 season totaled 128, 000 
bushels. This was the same as produced last year but 
18, 000 bushels less than the five year average. Acre- 
age planted declined from 1,600 last year to 1,500 dur- 
ing the 1963-64 crop year. Acreage planted to lima 
beans has been declining since the 1945-46 season when 
a record 9,100 acres were planted. 

Harvest began in Plant City and North Florida 
in October but by January Pompano was the principle 
source of supply. Shipments during the fall of 1963 
through December 31 were almost identical to ship- 



ments during the same period the previous year. Vol- 
ume through the Pompano mai-ket during January. Feb- 
ruary and March of 1964 was below movement during 
these same months the year before, Pompano contin- 
ued to be the principle source of supply during April 
but in May the Plant City area came into peak produc- 
tion as harvest in Pompano declined. Plant City har- 
vest continued into June by which time North Florida 
picking had begun. 

Winter limas come mostly from the Pompano 
area due to cold weather in the other lima growing areas 
during the winter harvest period. Spring volume came 
mostly from Plant City and North Florida areas. Ship- 
ments totaled 114 carlot equivalents for the season com- 
pared to 113 for the 1962-63 season. 

These estimates include all varieties of lima 
beans: fordhook, baby limas, and speckled butter beans. 
Intra- state consumption accounts for approximately 30 
to 40 percent of the total production.

SNAP BEANS 
1963-64 



Value of the 1963-64 snap bean production in 
Florida was $16,794,000, up about $600,000 from the 
year before but weU above the five year average of 
$15,860,000. 

Light harvest was underway in Gadsden County 
by the middle of September while in the Pompano area 
planting was just beginning. During the last week of 
September, heavy rains and accompanying winds dam- 
aged the bean crop over most of the State, Wind scar 
was reported in Gadsden County and some acreage was 
lost in theSanford and Dade Coxmty areas. Early acre- 
age in the Pompano and Plant City areas was damaged, 
October was a good month for plant development, and 
by the end of the month harvest was underwaj' in all 
areas of the State. 

Frost near the middle of November terminated 
harvest in North Florida and in the Zellwood area. 
Beans in the Sanford area received light damage. In 
the Everglades, Pompano and Dade County areas cold 
weather in late November and December slowed plant 
growth and bean development. 

Freezing temperatures near the middle of Jan- 



uary caused excessive damage in Dade County and the 
Everglades while causing only leaf burn in Pompano. 
A freeze the morning of February 24 killed some spring 
acreage in the Everglades. 

Planting in Central and North Florida gotunder- 
way in March. Frost March 31 and April 1 destroyed 
about 10 percent of the spring pole bean crop in Gads- 
den County and damaged the bean crop as far south as 
the Everglades, 

Shipments reached a peak during April when 
picking was underway in all areas of the State, Warm, 
and in most areas, dry weather, pushed beans to ma- 
turity rapidly at this time. Before the end of April pole 
bean harvest in Dade County was complete and volume 
of bush beans from South Florida was decreasing. Heavy 
rains the last few days of April relieved drought condi- 
tions and caused some damage to mature beans from the 
Mcintosh area to Dade County. 

During May and June, North Florida was the 
principle source of the declining supply of snap beans 
for fresh market. By the first week of June harvest 
was practically complete in all areas except Gadsden 
County and shipments had slowed to a trickle.

CABBAGE 
1963-64 



Production from the 1963-64 crop was valued at 
only $6,362,000, a shai'p reduction of 31 percent from 
the previous year and a tremendous drop of 54 percent 
from the record high of 1961-62, but only 15 percent 
less than average. The sharp drop was primarily due 
to a lower market price through most of the season, 
averaging only $1. 25 per 50 pound unit compared with 
$1.62 the previous season, $2. 55 during 1961-62 and 
$1.48 for the five year average. 

The 16, 600 acres harvested was close to that 
of 1962-63, being only2 percent more and only one per- 
cent above average. The average yield harvested at 
340 crates per acre was 10 crates less than that of the 
previous season. Production during the season totaled 
5, 644, 000 crates, nearly as much as the 5, 670,000 pro- 
duced during the 1962-63 season but 4 percent above 
average. 



Continuing cold weather in late December con- 
ditioned the crop against the more serious low tempera- 
tures of January 14-15. Wet fields prior to the low 
temperatures may have minimized actual cold damage. 
However, additional rains following this period damaged 
feeder root systems of the Hastings area crop in par- 
ticular, causing small head sizes and reduced tonage. 
Considerable cullage and stripping of outer leaves was 
necessary. Some similar damage occurred in the San- 
ford-Oviedo area. Sarasota and Dade County fared much 
better. 

As the season advanced, production increased 
with sizes becoming larger and quality better. Move- 
ment in March was still below normal eventhough21 
percent of the total crop moved out-of-state during this 
month. The peak month for movement was April when 
30 percent of the year' s total volume was shipped. 



First harvest again occurred in the Zellwood 
area in early November from fields direct seeded in 
August. Harvest started in the Everglades during the 
second half of November, but interstate shipments dur- 
ing November were only one percent of the total for the 
year. By mid-December, harvest was underway in 
most areas of the State. 



Prices were too low for complete harvest in 
most areas. An estimated 554, 000 crates of merchan- 
table quality cabbage were left to rot in the fields. San- 
ford-Oviedo Zellwood again continued producing later 
than other areas of the State. In June, 15 equivalent 
carlots were shipped from Duval, Hillsborough and 
Seminole counties.

CANTALOUPS 
1964 



Cantaloup production during the 1964 season was 
valued at $436,000, more than double the $204, 000 crop 
of 1963 and 6 percent above average. The season aver- 
age price of $4. 95 per hundredweight was a sharp in- 
crease over the low $2. 65 of 1963, comparing more 
favorably with, but still less than the five year average 
of $5. 46. 

The 1,900 acres planted was amarked iacrease 
over the low 1,200 of 1963 and compared favorably with 
the 1,880 acre average. The acreage harvested at 
1,600 was equal to the five year average and was 500 
acres more than harvested the previous year. The 
average yield at 55 hundredweight per acre is near 
the five year average of 49 hundredweight per acre. 



Total production during 1964 at 88, 000 hundred- 
weight compared with 77, 000 the previous spring which 
was equal to the five year average. Much of the pro- 
duction sold, especially early in the season, is used in 
the State and not shown as shipments. Harvest started 
in early April at Immokalee but volume was delayed 
until late April. Dade County's crop was small in acre- 
age and of short duration because of heavy rains. Grow- 
ers in other South and Central areas picked cantaloups 
in conjunction with watermelon harvest. North Central 
areas came into production in early June. Yields were 
affected in the important Newberry area by drouth and 
the cold weather of March which reduced stands. Many 
fields had no irrigation facilities available. Most har- 
vest was completed in late June.

CELERY 
1963-64 



Celery marketed from Florida's 1963-64 crop 
was valued at$20, 861, 000, a sharp increase of 39 per- 
cent over that of the previous season. This sharp in- 
crease in total value was due to a relatively steady higher 
level of prices received during the season. The season 
average price at $2. 83 per crate was a very desirable 
increase over the $2. 10 per crate of the previous year. 
The highest price of record was during the war year of 
1942-43 when growers received $4. 11 per crate. 

Transplanting began in late July in the Ever- 
glades and in Zellwood. Transplanting started iu the 
Sanford-Oviedo area the first week of September. Grow- 
ers in the Sarasota area did not start planting until the 
first week of October. 

Growing conditions were poor to mostly favor- 
able during the season. Temperatures averaged below 
normal through all of December, especially in Central 
Florida, slowing growth and maturity. The freeze of 
January 14-15 made extra stripping necessary, espe- 
cially in the Everglades, damaged the mature crop at 
Sanford-Oviedo and left early plantings at Island Grove 
in poor condition. The crop in Sarasota sustained no 



damage. 

Acreage transplanted after January 1 is classi- 
fied as spring celery. Plantings continued in the Ever- 
glades after January 1, at Oviedo and for a short time 
in Sarasota, Planting had started in late December at 
Island Grove and continued until all fields were planted. 
Planting for spring harvest at Zellwood was resumed 
in January, The shock to plants by cold weather in mid- 
January caused considerable bolting or "seeders" in 
Central and North Florida fields. 

First harvest started November 4 on the early 
crop at Zellwood and was completed about a month la- 
ter. Celery harvested was of very good quality and 
yields were good for November. Harvest started in the 
Everglades the first week of November and continued 
until the end of the season, or about June 20. Sanford 
and Sarasota came into production in early January and 
Oviedo by mid-month. Harvest was near completion in 
Sanford by early April but light supplies continued from 
Sarasota into early May. Harvest was terminated at 
Island Grove and Zellwood in late June or the first days 
of July.

SWEET CORN 
1963-64 



The value of sweet corn production marketed in 
1963-64 continued its upward spiral establishing an all 
time record. Total value of sales at $18, 483, 000 was 
only 3 percent more than in 1962-63 but was 31 percent 
more than the five year average. Monthly average 
prices received held above those of the previous year 
with the exception of January and July. 

Planting began in the Everglades the first week 
of July and in the Pompano and Ft, Myers areas in late 
September. Growers in Dade County began planting in 
late October. Some acreage at Pompano was reseeded 
after heavy rains October 2-4. Harvest got underway 
in the Everglades in early October. 

High winds November 29-30 caused some dam- 
age both at Pompano and Ft. Myers. Some replanting 
was again necessary. Scattered frost and belowfreez- 
ing temperatures December 25-26 caused minor dam- 
age in the Everglades. Harvest started in the Pompano 
and Ft, Myers areas in late December. Freezing 
temperatures in mid-January killed considerable acre- 
age in the semi-warm and cold land away from Lake 
Okeechobee. Most damage was to plants of tasseling 



size. Harvest started in Dade County in mid-February. 

Planting was completed in the Ft. Myers area 
in early January and in Dade County in early February. 
Planting at Zellwood was held off to allow for heavy 
replanting in the Everglades, following the freeze of 
February 24 which killed about 5, 000 acres planted in 
December, January and February, Last fields were 
planted at Pompano in late March and in the Everglades 
in early April, Planting of the Zellwood crop started 
the first week of March and continued until early May. 
Frost on April 1 caused minor loss of acreage and con- 
siderable leaf burn. Harvest started May 18 at Zellwood 
and May 27 on North Florida's small acreage, continuing 
through June into early July. 

Yield during the 1963-64 season was near 
average but less than those of the previous season. 
Production was 16 percent less than the previous sea- 
son but 10 percent above average. Replanting caused 
maturity in excess of demand and an estimated 374, 000 
crates of spring corn were abandoned, mostly in the 
Everglades.

CUCUMBERS 
1963-64 



Production of Florida cucumbers for fresh mar- 
ketduring the 1963-64 season reacheda record high of 
3,910,000 bushels. This production includes 246,000 
bushels that were not marketed for economic reasons. 

Planting of the fall crop in Central and North 
Florida was nearly complete by mid-September, Heavy 
rains in many of tlie growing areas in late September 
reduced quality and delayed maturity. These same 
rains delayed planting and caused the loss of some early 
acreage in the Ft. Myers-Immokalee, Pompano and 
Dade County areas. Light harvest began in North Flori- 
da the first week of October. By mid-October quality 
was improved and harvest was active as far south as 
the Wauchula area. Frost in early November in North 
Florida curtailed supplies. 

Harvest was active in the Ft. Myers-Immoka- 
lee and Pompano areas by mid-November. A decrease 
in volume occurred the latter part of December as har- 
vest was completed in Central Florida, Low tempera- 
tures on January 14 and 15 destroyed most of the old 
vines and killed much of the young plantings in the Ft, 
Myers-Immokalee, Pompano and Dade County areas. 



Planting was heavy in early February in the Ft, 
Myers-Immokalee area for spring harvest and was 
completed in the Wauchula area. The freeze on the 
morning of February 24 was not serious in the major 
cucumber growing areas. Some leaf burn occurred. 

Supplies increased in late March and through 
April and continued heavy through May. The Ft. Myers- 
Immokalee area had light supplies into mid-May. Dade 
County harvest was completed in early May. The 
Wauchula area had peak supplies in early May with light 
supplies available until early June. Harvest in the 
Webster area was most active in mid-May. Peak sup- 
plies from North Florida came the last week of May 
but dry weather curtailed production. Only very light 
supplies were available after the middle of June.

EGGPLANT 
1963-64 



Production from the 1963-64 eggplant crop was 
marketed for an estimated $2, 263, 000. This was a 
record which exceeded the value of the previous year's 
crop by 17 percent and the five year average by almost 
18 percent. Prices averaged consistently better than 
those of the previous season, except during the month 
of February. 

Imports from the West Indies moving through 
Florida ports were estimated at 82 car lots, 47 of which 
moved during February. 

The principle producing area is Pompano, but 
considerable acreage is also grown in North and Cen- 
tral Florida during the fall and spring seasons. A 
small acreage is also planted in the Ft. Myers-Immok- 
alee area during the fall and spring. 

Most seed beds for the fall crop are planted in 
July. Transplanting starts in August as far south as 
Pompano. Heavy rains in late September washed beds 
and leached fertilizer in the Pompano area. Winds 
and rains in North Florida at about this same time 
lowered general plant condition. 

Harvest of the fall crop began in North Florida 
about October land was in full volume late that month. 
Production continued from this area until cut off by 



frost. Harvest of the widely scattered Central Flori- 
da acreage started a little later than in North Florida, 
but followed a similar pattern. 

Plantings in the Pompano area are scheduled to 
assure relatively steady supplies through the fall, win- 
ter and spring seasons. Harvest started in early Octo- 
ber mostly for local market. 

Winter production comes mostly from the Pom- 
pano area. Low temperatures and frost normally re- 
duces volume perceptibly in mid-winter. This was 
true in 1963-64 as plants were retarded by cold winds 
and low temperatures in January. Volume increased 
in mid-March and continued as the principle source of 
supply into early May. 

Spring acreage in Plant City is planted earlier 
than in North Florida. Most of North Florida's small 
spring acreage was transplanted in late March and 
early April. 

Harvest of the spring crop started at Plant 
City during the first half of May and in North Florida 
in early June. Supplies continued available through 
July. 

Volume during the 1963-64 season reached a 
peak in April when 205 equivalent carlots were shipped.

ESCAROLE 
1963-64 



A total of 7, 500 acres of escarole and chicory 
were planted in Florida during the 1963-64 crop year. 
Sixtj'-five percent of this acreage was grown in the 
Everglades, 27 percent in Orange, Lake and Seminole 
Counties and most of the remaining 8 percent in Sara- 
sota and Highlands Counties, A total of 2,904,000 
crates were produced. 

Seedingfor early harvest in the Everglades and 
Zellwood areas began in late August. Growers in the 
Zellwood area seed primarily for early and late har- 
vest. Acreage ia this area is very small during the 
months most subjected to cold damage. Many growers 
in the Everglades seed a constant amount each week in 
order to have a steady supply through the season. 

Light supplies were available in Zellwood by 
mid-October. The Everglades had limited supplies 
available the latter part of October, Volume became 
heavy by late November. Frost in early December 
slowed maturity and burnt some of the older escarole 
in the Zellwood area. Most supplies December through 
February were from the Everglades, with some volume 
from Sarasota, Highlands County and the Zellwood 



area. 

Freezing temperatures during the week ended 
January 17, 1964, caused severe leaf burn on the Ever- 
glades' crop. Yields were reduced and heavy stripping 
was necessary. Quality improved in early February. 

A second freeze occurred on February 24. Dam- 
age was not as extensive but some additional leaf burn 
occurred. Volume and quality improved during March, 

Zellwood volume began to increase in late March 
and early April. Harvest was active in all growing 
areas during April. After the first of May, only lim- 
ited supplies were available from the Everglades. Most 
of the volume for the remainder of the season came 
from Zellwood, 

The Everglades accounted for 68 percent of 
total shipments during the 1963-64 season. About 24 
percent of the volume came from Orange and Seminole 
Counties — primarily Zellwood, The remaining 8 per- 
cent came from other Central and Southern areas of 
the State,

LETTUCE 
1963-64 



Growers in Florida harvested 3, 300 acres dur- 
ing the 1963-64 season which produced 2 64 ,000 hundred- 
weight, about normal for the past five years. Included 
in these totals are Iceberg, Romaine, Boston, Leaf and 
Bibb. The percentage of each shipped during the season 
follows: Romaine 46, Boston 27, Iceberg 13, Leaf 10 
and Bibb 4 percent. 

Each type of lettuce is packed in a container 
that is commonprimarily to that particular lettuce and 
each container has a different net weight. Because of 
the different containers of different weights, production 
is published in hundredweight. The following net 
weights are used for the various containers when con- 
verting production to hundredweight: Romaine 25, 
Boston 20, Iceberg 35, Leaf 20 and Bibb 12 pounds. 

The Everglades normally produces about 50per- 
cent of the total quantity harvested and about 25 percent 
of the total comes from Central Florida. The remain- 
der is produced in Highlands, Sarasota, Dade and Hills- 
borough Counties. 



August marks the beginning of early seeding in 
the Everglades and Zellwood areas. Growers inZell- 
wood and other Central Florida areas plant heavy for 
early and late harvest but light during the cold danger 
period. Seeding in other areas of the State is a con- 
tinuous process. A nearly constant acreage is seeded 
each week to furnish a steady supply through the har- 
vesting period. 

A limited supply of letti'ce was available in mid- 
October from both Zellwood and the Everglades. Zell- 
wood was the principle source of supply during Novem- 
ber but volume from this area was limited during 
December. 

Early December marked an increase in supplies 
from the Everglades. The principle source of lettuce 
from December through March was from the Everglades. 
Harvest became more active in Central Florida in April 
and supplies from the Everglades declined. Light sup- 
plies from Central Florida continued through May.

GREEN PEPPERS 
1963-64 



Florida's 1963-64 pepper production was valued 
at $16, 934, 000, a substantial increase of 26 percent 
over sales the previous year and one-third more than 
the five year average. This record was brought about 
by a 4 percent increase in production with high prices 
that are often desired but seldom attained. The $3. 36 
season average price per bushel was exceeded only in 
the 1957-58 freeze year and in 1946-47. 

The Pompano-Martin County area on the Lower 
East Coast produced 57 percent of the total production 
in 1963-64. This area also handles considerable vol- 
lune from the Ft, Myer s-Immokalee area, particularly 
from the Devil's Garden section. 

Direct field seeding is the most common method 
of planting in South Florida and started in August. 
General planting continued into mid-November. Some 
losses occurred from the excessive rains of late Sep- 
tember. Gusty winds September 29 affected plants, 
especially in the Ft, Myers-Immokalee area. High 
winds from hurricane Flora hit again throughout South 
Florida October 5, 6 and 7. 

Cubanells and hot varieties were first to ma- 



ture. Shipments from South Florida areas started in 
late October and continued through June with heaviest 
movement January through April. Low temperatures 
in mid-January froze older bushes half-way back in 
the Ft. Myers-Immokalee area which resulted in light 
winter volume. Planting in this area and in Martin 
County continues longer than in Pompano with trans- 
plantings through January. New crop harvest from 
these late plantings got underway in mid-March with 
harvest starting in some fields as late as mid-April. 
Heaviest supplies were harvested in April when 18 per- 
cent of the total crop was shipped. Harvest continued 
into late IVIay with a few shipments in early June. 

Transplanting of spring peppers at Plant City 
got underway in February extending northward as the 
season advanced, reaching completion in North Florida 
about April 1. Frost damage occurred March 31, es- 
pecially to plants that had rooted and started growing. 
Most were in a dormant stage, sustaining only minor 
damage. 

Early harvest started in the Plant City- Sanf ord- 
Webster areas in early May. Harvest started in North 
Florida in late May and volume continued through June.

miSH POTATOES 
1963-64 



The value of Florida's Irish potatoes produced 
during the 1963-64 crop year was estimated at 
$19, 128, 000. The average price received for tlie year 
at a strong $3. 69 per hundredweight accounted for the 
high value, exceeded only in 1954-55 and 1955-56. Pro- 
duction was 17 percent less than the previous year. 

The winter potatoes were grown in South Flori- 
da. Acreage continued ata low level, being the lowest 
planted in many years, with the exception of 1962. 
Earliest plantings were, as usual, made in the Ever- 
glades. Planting la this area started the last week of 
August. A small acreage was planted in the Balm- 
Plant City area. Planting started at Ft. Myers in early 
October and in Dade County in late October. 

Harvest started In the Everglades December 9 
before planting had ceased in Dade and Indian River 
Counties. Hai-vestof "reds" startedatFt. Myers about 
January 27 and in Dade County in mid- February. 

Freezing temperatures occurred in areas north 
of Lake Okeechobee on January 14, with all areas ex- 
posed to freezing weatlier on the 15th. State wide rains 
preceeded the cold of the 14th and 15th and recurred 
on the 17th, producing abundant moisture in all areas. 
Freeze damage was heavy in the Ft. Myers area and 



somewhat less in Dade County. AU areas except the 
Everglades sustained some reduction in potential yield. 

Harvest of winter potatoes continued through 
March and was completed about April 20. Demand 
was excellent and prices held about steady. 

Hastings farmers grew about 74 percent of the 
1963-64 potato production. The 24,000 acres planted 
in this area compared with 24, 600 the previous spring 
and a 1957 high of 26,000. Planting started before 
Christmas, but was often delayed by excessive rains. 
The freeze of mid-January did little damage but ex- 
cessive moisture caused considerable rotting of seed 
pieces and some replanting was necessary. Planting 
was finally completed in early March. 

Harvest of "whites" started in Hastings April 
1. Utilization by the "chipping" industry is high, A 
good percentage is grown under contract. A strong 
demand resulted in high fresh market prices. 

Adverse weather delayed planting of spring po- 
tatoes in the Gainesville-Lake Butler and West Florida 
areas. Harvest started at Balm about April 13 and in 
Gainesville-Lake Butler the week of April 17 and in 
West Florida ui late May.

SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1963-64 



Florida's spinach crop for processing is grown 
exclusively ia the Zellwood area. The 2,600 acres 
harvested in 1963-64 is the largest on record, A total 
of 13, 000 tons was harvested and of this amount 23 per- 
cent was utilized for freezing and 77 percent for canning. 

The yield in 1963-64 was slightly below average 
due to heavy rains late in the season which reduced 
quality in low spots. 

The average price of $41. 00 per ton is on a de- 
livered to the processing door basis and includes the 



costs of harvesting, hauling, etc. Prices shown prior 
to the 1963-64 season represent the amount paid the 
grower at the first receiving point. 

Seeding began in late November. Harvest start- 
ed in mid-January and continued through much of March. 

Approximately 60 percent of the 1963-64 spinach 
cropwasutilizedbyprocessors in Florida. Forty per- 
cent went to processors in Alabama, Arkansas and 
Georgia.

SQUASH 
1963-64 



The 9,600 acres harvested during the 1963-64 
season was the smallest in 10 years. An average price 
of $3. 38 per hundredweight was the second highest dur- 
ing the past 10 years. 

Harvest of the fall crop began in North Florida 
in mid-October. Heavy rains the first half of October 
delayed seeding in Dade County and in the Pompano 
area. Harvest was general in North Florida and un- 
derway in the Plant City area by late October. Frost 
the last week of November terminated harvest in some 
parts of North Florida. Light harvest began in mid- 
November in Pompano and in the Ft. Myers-Immoka- 
lee area. During thefirstweek of December, volume 
increased to 54 equivalent carlots. Fall supplies peak- 
ed the week ended December 21 when 57 carlots were 
shipped. 

Harvest of winter supplies continued active in 
the Ft. Myers-Immokalee, Pompano and Dade County 



areas in January. Sixty-one carlots were shipped the 
week ended January 11. 

The freeze in mid-January caused severe dam- 
age in all growing areas. Some fields escaped damage 
and light volume continued to be available through Jan- 
uary and February. Winter volume peaked the last 
week of March. 

Supplies began to decline from the southern 
growing areas in late April. Spring volume reached 
a peak during the week ended April 25. Some supplies 
were available from most producing areas through May 
but volume shipped declined. 

The North and Central Florida areas were com- 
ing into production while volume from the southern 
growing areas was declining. Light harvest continued 
well into June in North Florida.

STRAWBERRIES 
1963-64 



The total value of strawberries produced during 
the 1963-64 season was $7,175,000. This is a record 
high value. In 1938-39, 9, 000 acres of strawberries 
weregrown. Thisacreageproduced27,540,000 pounds 
compared to the 20,790,000 pounds from the 2,700 
acres in the 1963-64 season. 

The total value of the 1938-39 cropwas$175,000, 
only 44 percent of the value of the current crop. This 
increase in total value can be attributed primarlLy to 
the fact that yield has more than doubled since the 
1938-39 season. 

Transplanting was active in all areas during 
October. Most of the plastic was laid by late Novem- 
ber. Nearly all Florida strawberries are grown on 
plastic covered beds. Light volume was available ia 
the Plant City area in early December. First truck 
shipments from the Lower East Coast were reported 



during the week ended December 28. 

Harvest from all areas remained light duriag 
December and early January as the result of consist- 
ently below normal temperatures. The week ended 
January 11 had temperatures that were above normal 
and the following week all areas were subjected to a 
hard freeze. These low temperatures caused some 
blooms to fall from plants. Volume gradually increas- 
ed duriag February. 

Peak production was reached in mid-March for 
both the Lower East Coast and Hillsborough Coimty 
areas. A total of 174 carlots were shipped by rail and 
truck the week ended March 14. Production in the 
Starke area reached peak levels the last week of March. 
Light supplies were available well into May, primarily 
from North Florida.

TOMATOES 
1963-64 



Value of production from Florida's important 
tomato crop during the 1963-64 crop year was an out- 
standing $66, 468, 000 almost 29 percent more than the 
previous season and over 50 percent greater than the 
five year average. This value was an all-time record, 
the closest being the $58, 000, 000 crop during the 1954- 
55 crop year. 

Total vine-ripes for harvest at 5,190 acres 
comparedwith the previous year's 4,120 acres. This 
crop is grown heavily in the Pompano area supplement- 
ed by considerable supplies from Coilier County. Most 
Florida tomatoes are grownfor the mature green mar- 
ket. 

Fall seeding started in late July and was active 
in early August. By lateAugust, fall planting was com- 
plete except in the vine-ripe and Dade County areas 
where it continues with no seasonal break. Planting 
was resumed in the Ft. Pierce, Ft. Myers -Immokalee 
and Manatee-Ruskin-Wauchula areas in December and 
continued in Dade County and the Pompano area. Grow- 
ers in North Central areas started planting in early 
January. Planting was complete by March 7, except 
for a small acreage of vitie-ripes. 

Excessive rains in late September damaged 



plants, leached fertilizer and caused loss of bloom in 
all areas. Some acreage was lost in Dade County and 
Pompano. High winds September 29 and October 5, 6 
and 7 lowered condition of vine-ripes and mature greens 
in Lower East Coast areas. 

Freezing temperatures of mid-January caused 
heavy bloom drop on older vine-ripe acreage and 
severely damaged Dade County's important winter 
crop. Potential production was sharply reduced. 

Temperatures from early December to early 
March were consistently below normal and rainfall was 
more tlian average during January and February except 
in Dade Coimty. Rainfall was again heavy in late April 
and early May damaging plants in the Clewiston-Devil's 
Garden area and in the Pompano vine-ripe area. Acre- 
age in Wauchula and North Central areas was affected 
adversely by rain at this same time. 

Limited harvest started in late October with 
volume supplies available by the third week of Novem- 
ber, Volume dropped near the end of December but 
increased sharply in early January and held relatively 
constant level until late March when shipments in- 
creased. A peak was reached the week ended May 9 
when 1,656 equivalent carlots were shipped.

WATERMELONS 
1964 



Watermelons produced during the 1963-64 crop 
year were sold for $15, 717,000, exceeding the record 
set in 1954-55 when value of production was $14,428,000. 
This high value was the result of heavy production and 
good prices through most of the season. 

Oldest plants in the Ft. Myers-Immokalee area 
had three or four leaves showing by early December. 
Below normal temperatures through December retard- 
ed growth and germination in all early areas. Planting 
was underway in Hillsborough, Manatee and Polk 
Counties by mid-January, 

Low temperatures on January 15 killed vines 
back in some areas of South Florida. Some fields were 
replanted. Planting was undenvay in North Central 
areas in early February and had started in North and 
West Florida by early March. 

Earliest fields in the Immokalee area were 
blooming and setting fruit in late February. Earliest 
fields in West Florida were up by late March. Very 
light harvest started in the Immokalee area the first 
week of April. By the first week of April, vines were 
running in Central areas and growers were thinning, 
hoeing and side-dressing in North Central areas. 
Most fields in West Florida were up and oldest plants 
had four leaves. 



By May 1, harvest at Immolcalee had increased 
to full volume and had started in Indiantown. 

Immokalee supplies were still heavj' in mid- 
May and volume from Indiantown was increasing. Har- 
vest had started from the Arcadia- Lake Placid and 
south Polk Countj' areas. Harvest from Immokalee 
and Indiantown was about complete by late May and har- 
vest in Central areas was getting underway. Harvest 
in Lake and Sumter Cou^nties started the last week of 
May. Picking began in Marion and Levy Counties the 
first week of June, A period of extremely dry weather 
from early May until early June cut production in Cen- 
tral, North and West Florida areas. 

Harvest was active in the south portion of the 
North Florida area by mid-Jime and was just getting 
underway in West Florida, By the end of June harvest 
was active in all areas of North Florida and increasing 
rapidly from West Florida areas 

Approximately 49 percent of the total volume 
moved in June when 13,283 equivalent carlots were 
shipped, A total of 1,749 equivalent carlots were 
shipped in July. Harvest was completed in early Aug- 
ust.
